Abstract

A software application of gamma-ray spectra is developed for the Android based smart phone platform. This will allow people to connect a radiation detection device, such as a scintillation detector, to a smart phone via USB. Spectra data transferred to the smart phone will be presented to the end-user in a graphical format. This application is very useful for the detection of radioactivity in our daily life.

The software is developed using Android SOK and Emulator. The software consists of three major modules: (1) Graphical user interface (GUI); (2) File management; and (3) Data management. The GUI is designed with the goal of simplicity and ease of use. It consists primarily of menus and submenus. The file management module is responsible for file open and save operations. The data management module includes data acquisition, data processing, data display, auto peak identification, auto isotope identification, zooming, etc.
